Great! We'll be cutting it down even more before September. :-)

I've added this to the FAQ list. We haven't finalised what we're doing on
this front just yet, but during our meeting here in Oxford, we'll be having
a licensing/legal BOF. Hopefully we'll have a final decision after that.

We can't choose Vera, because it doesn't have *really* good glyph coverage,
but we will choose a better default that does.

That's *definitely* going to be fixed up. ;-)

Thanks very much for the report!
